Betting Tips
  • Moises Henriques came back into form in Sydney Sixers’ last game with 49 from 35 balls. The captain is our pick for Sydney Sixers’ highest run scorer in this match. With the ball, Ben Dwarshuis took 5-26 against Melbourne Renegades and is a strong choice for Sydney Sixers’ top wicket taker in the Sydney derby.
  • Alex Hales has scored 181 runs in his last three innings and the English opener is well worth backing as Sydney Thunder’s highest run scorer against Sydney Sixers. Mohammad Hasnain has 7 wickets from only four games in the tournament and is our tip for Sydney Thunder’s top wicket taker in this fixture.
  • The Sydney Sixers captain, Moises Henriques, began the competition in excellent form but has since gone off the boil. He looked back to his best in the last game and is our prediction for the Player of the Match Award.

Sydney Sixers Team News & Playing 11

SYS Team News

Moises Henriques’ side had no problem in defeating Melbourne Renegades in their last game but Sydney Thunder will be a much tougher proposition in this match. They were at full strength in their last game and they have no new injury worries ahead of this fixture.

SYS Key Players

  • Josh Philippe - The keeper-batter has gone through a barren patch of runs recently but he is a top quality player who will make another big score soon.
  • Moises Henriques - The Sixers captain hit 5 boundaries in the win against Melbourne Renegades and looks well set to make some more valuable runs in the rest of the BBL 2021-22.
  • Ben Dwarshuis - The left-arm fast medium bowler has combined figures of 7-60 from his last two BBL matches.

SYS Team Form

The Sixers had their momentum interrupted with games postponed and a couple of defeats but they are no back on track.

Sydney Sixers Predicted Playing 11

Jack Edwards, Josh Philippe (wk), Daniel Hughes, Moises Henriques (c), Shadab Khan, Daniel Christian, Sean Abbott, Hayden Kerr, Ben Dwarshuis, Jackson Bird, Todd Murphy

Sydney Thunder Team News & Playing 11

SYT Team News

Jason Sangha’s side were on the receiving end of a returning Matthew Wade masterclass with the bat at the Marvel Stadium on Thursday. Although they lost their winning run, they still put in a good performance and we do not expect them to make any changes ahead of this match.

SYT Key Players

  • Alex Hales - The opening batter has not played an international game since 2019 but is now one of the most in-demand players on the T20 franchise circuit.
  • Mohammad Hasnain - The young Pakistan pace bowler picked up 1 wicket in the last game but has caused batters problems throughout his short time in the tournament.
  • Tanveer Sangha - The spinner has taken wickets in each of the last three games and is always very economical when it comes to leaking runs.

SYT Team Form

Sydney Thunder’s winning streak has ended after six games but they have more than enough talent to start another run of victories.
